Tasty Laksa!

Very tasty authentic Laksa and the service is always great. Their Pad Thai and stir fries are not bad either. The atmosphere is on the casual side but I would definitely recommend for a casual meal out!

This is one of my favorite thai restaurants in Sydney CBD. Tried most items on the menu and everything was excellent. Been here multiple times and was never disappointed. Red curry and Fried rice are my personal favorites ! If you are in mood for some thai food, Try this place !

This is a great lunch time Thai eatery and even better for dinner. Don't be afraid to go to the back - there's a secret dinning area that's just lovely in the summer!

Grabbed some takeaway from Lemongrass and it was delicious! I had the Tom Yum soup w/ chicken and a Green Curry w/ Beef. I thought the price was reasonable until I tried to eat all of the food - the price was wonderful! Try as I might, there was no way I was going to finish off everything I ordered... More

Ordered take-away one night while in Sydney. Hadn't had pad thai for ages and was disappointed as it wasn't very flavorful at all. I thought it seemed expensive but in reality there was enough food for two, maybe three in one order. Perhaps it's better when you eat in but I was not impressed with the takeout.

Having been to both countries it is great to taste food that is honest to those places. Great curries, great value. I look forward to returning, if I lived closer I would get there more often.

Had a group dinner this week at lemongrass and was impressed. Fairly simple menu nothing fancy. Great prices considering its a stone throw from darling harbour. We sat out the back in an outside courtyard with bamboo walls, nice little place for a small group to enjoy a meal. We had a range of dishes and everyone of them was... More
